HOLY JEEBUS – BOYETT RELEASES SEQUEL TO ARIEL

11/30/2009 Leave a comment

Sooo…..

Ariel.

Wait….this is not right.  This was not how it looked when I read it when I was 14.

There.  That is better.  For me this will be the cover I summon to mind when I think about this book.  I loved this book.  It touched me, made me laugh, and it made me cry.  My buddy Chad and I read it several times.

Steven had his own battle with the publishers that is in detail at his site:

I am just pleased that Elegy Beach is here:

It had the same magic from the very first sentence.

Even though I had a good inkling where this was headed once I found out the main character’s name, I read it in one sitting last night.  Crawled into bed at 3:00am.

This book did not dissapoint.  There were fewer ‘laugh out loud’ moments than Ariel but had more polish and maturity to it….go figure 20 someodd years had passed in Real/Change worlds.

My wife was at a loss as she did not understand my excitement at seeing it in the book store.

She was understanding as I departed the bedroom to be in peace while I devoured this long awaited treasure.

I cried when Pete and Ariel reunited.

I felt betrayed to learn of Ariel’s lying manipulation…

But then…this is Fred’s tale.  He has a different view of Ariel for how broken his father was at her loss in his life.

I just hope more is to come.

People say to me, “Bill, quit bringing up Kennedy, man. Let it go. It was a long time ago.” All right, then don’t bring up Jesus to me. I mean, as long as we’re talking shelf-life here. “You know, Bill, Jesus died for us …” Yeah, it was a long time ago. Forget about it. How about this, get Pilate to release the f**kin’ files. Quit washing your hands, Pilate, and release the files. Who else was on that grassy Golgotha that day?

Bill Amend does Penny Arcade

09/10/2009 Leave a comment

Crossover guest strips is a very common thing in the webcomics world but I tell you…
I was thrilled:

Bill Amend, of FoxTrot fame, guest-stripped the boys of Penny Arcade.

Being a big fan of these two it was thrilling to see it.
As their comic page is time sensitive:

Bill Amend’s Guest Strip for PA

Enjoy!
